Core Committee Member Honored
Bobbi Pollock honored at AFP luncheon

Bobbi Pollock, long-time member of the Women's Core Committee, was honored recently by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Northwestern PA Chapter as their 2016 Outstanding Philanthropist. The Neighborhood Art House, The Erie Playhouse and Temple Anshe Hesed jointly nominated Bobbi for this award to honor her for her many years of dedicated service and financial support for them and to other organizations in Erie. When something is happening at the Art House, count on Bobbi to be there. Whether it is setting up for Taste of the Arts, assisting in the annual holiday cookie decorating with Art House children, or sleeves rolled up cutting oranges for Art & Sole refreshments, Bobbi prefers a role of quiet service. She consistently thanks us for "allowing me to be involved doing things I love for the children." In addition to being a major donor for the Art House, Bobbi notices needs and quietly provides the means to make them happen. On several occasions, she merged her love for the Erie Playhouse and the Neighborhood Art House by providing tickets for the children and their families to attend major performances that particularly appealed to children.

Neighborhood Art House Executive Directors Annette Marshall, OSB (current) and Anne Wambach (former) join with the Art House staff and Core Committee to sincerely congratulate Bobbi on her recognition as Northwest Pennsylvania Outstanding Philanthropist!
